Porsche Gives Simona Halep a Red 911 Carrera 4

Coming back from the WTA Finals in Singapore, Romanian tennis player Simona Halep was welcomed with quite the surprise. Porsche has gifted the young star with a brand new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 Coupe finished in red. WTA’s Most Improved Player took the car home today, from the Porsche dealership in Bucharest and seemed to be quite pleased with it.

Even though she lost the chance of claiming the fifth WTA Finals title in Singapore in front of Serena Williams, Romanian tennis player Simona Halep did have quite the venture lately. After firstly cruising to a 6-0, 6-2 victory when the two women met in the pool stages of the tournament, Williams sealed the tournament with a crushing win.

However, the 23-year old tennis player is currently ranked world No.3 so it’s no wonder Porsche gave her a brand new car. After all, when you’re a famous sportscar maker you definitely want one of the best tennis players in the world to drive your creation. Same performance as Steffi Graf
Not that we don’t trust your knowledge in sports, but let us offer you a little heads up here. The 23-year old tennis player from originally Constanta, a Romanian city located on the Black Sea coast, has had an incredibly fast evolution.

Halep first broke into the world’s top 50 at the end of 2012, then into the top 20 in August 2013, and then top 10 in January 2014 (after reaching the Australian Open quarterfinal).

She won her first 6 WTA titles in the same calendar year in 2013, a feat that was last achieved by Steffi Graf in 1986 when she won her first 7. For that she was named the WTA’s Most Improved Player at its end, as well as being named ESPN Center Court’s 2013 Most Improved Player.

Simona Halep reached the 2014 French Open final, her first Grand Slam final, where she played against Maria Sharapova. She lost this final in three sets. A future Porsche Ambassador?
And this is where we stop for a second. Why? Because there is something the Russian tennis player and Halep have in common.

Maria Sharapova is already famous for being a Porsche Ambassador and one of its most active stars to feature in the company’s advertorials. Seeing Porsche giving Simona a brand new car made us wonder whether the Germans are considering starting a collaboration with her as well. Or maybe it’s too soon for that...

Anyway, drive safe and enjoy the ride Simona, it’s definitely a heck of a sporstcar!
